One of Turkey’s most popular beaches, Icmeler Beach, is located about eight kilometers from the holiday hub of Marmaris. It is a thriving holiday resort that was once upon a time a fishing village. Today this herritage is very much overshadowed by an array of restaurants, pubs, hotels, shops, and more.
The arc of coarse golden sand faces into the bright blue waters of the Mediterranean. Beyond the beach verdant eucalyptus and pine clad hills rise steeply from the coast. Running behind İçmeler Beach is the palm-lined promenade which runs all the way to Marmaris. A walk along here makes for a great excursion, and you’ll won’t find any shortage of spots to stop for refreshments en route.
During high season there is no getting away from the fact that Icmeler is busy, if not crowded. Many of the best spots on the beach are occuppied by the sun loungers and umbrellas of the adjoining hotels, and it may not be easy to find a patch of sand to setup for the day.
Fortunately there are plenty activities beyond soaking up the sun including water skiing and scuba diving. Most of the hotels have activities for children, and you can enjoy the nearby Atlantis Waterpark with a few thrill rides and slides. For those looking to explore and get a little closer to nature, you can go for hikes in the nearby hills or enjoy the natural mud baths.
İçmeler Beach is blessed with a beautiful location on the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas, and the scenery is amazing with the Taurus Mountains rising up from the waters. When you relax on the sands, you will be surrounded by Eucalyptus and palm trees, and you will never run out of things to do.
